We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Erik Erikson said "Psychotherapy begins where common sense ends."
Well, common sense isn't all that common. In fact, it is as rare and precious a thing as honesty.
The shrink proprietor of F*ck Feelings is darn good with common sense. As they say in The Program, "Feelings aren't Facts." I always like to apply common sense first, then other things if that doesn't help.
